COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina starting cornerback Chris Lammons was ejected against No. 18 Tennessee for throwing two punches at Vols receiver Jauan Jennings.

Lammons was called for unsportsmanlike conduct and thrown out in the opening quarter. He was locked up Jennings away from the play on a long run by Vols quarterback Joshua Dobbs when he freed his arm and connected with a punch to Jennings stomach, then took a swing at his helmet.

Lammons was escorted to the South Carolina locker room.

Lammons is a 5-foot-10 junior from Lauderhill, Florida. He has started all eight games this season.
